I wore this get up last night for one of my best friend's birthday party in Williamsburg. I was channeling the year 2003 when I put this outfit together. These were my thoughts: "Hmm, what would Britney Spears do in 2003? Oh, that's easy, let me tie this white button up and pretend I'm in her hit music video 'Baby One More Time'" Then I was like, "What was the tackiest/coolest thing during the early 2000's? This stupid American flag bead pin that girls used to make during summer camp? Yes. This pin." And finally I thought, "Fishnets. Done."
Threads: White button up is a cut up Ralph Lauren blouse I borrowed from my roommate Dominique. Vest is surprisingly from forever 21 (and I say surprisingly because I never find things I like in that store). Express maxi skirt (with a bomb-ass slit) was thrifted from Salvation Army. I wish you could feel the material. It feels like what prom dresses were made of in 1998. That stretchy fabric that sometimes looks like velvet...you know what I mean? Fishnets are from some drug store. ACE booties from Matiko.
Don't think I was prancing around Brooklyn sleeve-less last night, I threw on my leather jacket to stay warm (showed in third photo). It's still "winter" here so a jacket is necessary.
Details: The details to this look are my favorite! These reflective mirror circle sunnies were a dollar and change off Amazon. Can you say BARGAIN? Now take a look at that slit. Is it not perfect? Just enough leg to show off my fishnets and ankle length nylon socks peeking out of my Matiko ACE booties.
Before running out the door last night, I thought the vest looked a little boring, so luckily the previous day I bought a bunch of studs and pins in the Garment District. BAM, studded the collar with these cute triangle studs and stuck on my silly American flag pin.
